PB + J Yogurt



Peanut butter, grape jam, peanuts, and fresh red grapes on top of a bowl of yogurt... who needs the bread!

This was inspired by last week's trip to the chic new Chobani Soho Cafe. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen some of my photos of the wonderful yogurt creations I got to sample – some savory, some sweet. If you are ever in the Soho area, you must stop in. The "priciest" yogurt is only $3.75 and they are served in a pretty glass bowl.


I got to sample all of their flavors, one was better than the next. I loved the Fig + Walnut and The Cucumber Mint served with pita chip was absolutely delightful, I plan on making this one next!


But since many of you live far from NYC, I've recreated a skinny version of the Peanut Butter and Jelly so you can make in your own kitchen.


I used reduced sugar grape jelly, but strawberry preserves and different nut butters would be fabulous alternatives. I went with a reduced-fat peanut butter, but PB2 would work great too!

  1. Looks great, although I am not a big fan of peanut butter or peanuts.

    But will omit those things and I am sure it will be good...!!!

    2. I use it all the time in my yogurt and love it! My favorite is yogurt, PB2, banana and cinnamon.

    3. I've actually done this with PB2 and sugar free strawberry preserves - It is delish!

    4. Thanks for the reply! I'll try it! :)

    5. I'm not so bright, what is PB2?

      Delete
    6. PB2 in this is GREAT! If mixed directly into the yogurt with the jam or preserves, it takes on the consistency of a mousse. Mix all in a bowl with a whisk to fluff it up; the more PB2 the more dense the results. Dessert ideas? Absolutely!

  9. I recently saw grapes and almonds as a PB&J-type snack and I really wanted to try it- the addition of yogurt sounds like a fun twist!

    ReplyDelete
  10. That cafe is such a treat! I'll definitely have to stop by if I'm ever in the area! And this yogurt - what a wonderful snack idea! I've been a bad snacker so I definitely need this in my life. My skinny jeans are just too tight!

    ReplyDelete
  11. This looks like heaven in a bowl to me! Going to try this as a snack right now with PB2. Thanks for the never end inspiration to eat healthy!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm going to make this as soon as we finish the Creamy Grape Dessert you have posted. My daughter loved it. Thanks for the great recipes. My daughter thinks I'm a fantastic cook.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yum! This is such a fun twist on the classic sandwich. And I am definitely going to visit the Chobani Cafe the next time I'm in NYC!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wow, Gina, thanks for posting this delicious looking recipe! I have been desperately craving PB & J but was hesitant because of the calories. This will be a wonderful alternative! Going out to buy the ingredients ASAP!

    I also wanted to let you know that I have a few posts mentioning you primarily on my new blog, because you've been such an integral part of my weight-loss journey (I've dropped 40lbs!) So, if you have time, feel free to read! http://teacherellastales.blogspot.com/

  15. I just made this as a snack and it was delicious! Great idea.

  16. You know you should really stay away from reduced fat Peanut Butter. The fillers/additives are worse than a little extra healthy fat and 20 more calories. This goes for almost anything reduced fat

    ReplyDelete
  17. Chobani is my absolute fav! Love the recipe....simple, yet delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I've been following your blog for about six months and have lost 45lbs as a result. I cook almost solely from your site and my boyfriend can't believe that what I'm feeding him is all healthy. So ... thank you!

    With that being said, I'm OBSESSED with peanut butter (unhealthily so ... like, I want to eat it like it's ice cream) so I came right home from work and made this as a pre-baseball snack. Now it's all I want to eat! I made mine with fresh blueberries and blueberry jam. Sooo good!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I didn't know Chobani had a little shop! Not a surprise since I'm from Toronto. This is extraordinary! Chobani is my favourite Greek yogurt that's available in Canada. YUM!

  20. Heading down to the city at the end of the month...SO putting this on my list.

  21. Oh My Goodgracious!

    I used Chocolate PB2 and sugar free strawberry preserves, along with 1 cup of frozen unsweetened strawberries in ours. Sprinkled a tad Kashi Almond on it and we were blown away! (My 4 year old and I , that is lolol) I could only eat half of it, I was so full! Thank you for sharing this!!! Can't wait to see the others :)

  22. I am going to try this with the hubby and I going to Hollywood Bowl tomorrow for Juanes concert! I am really looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

    ReplyDelete
  23. OMG would you believe I succumbed to a PB and J on whole wheat today at work with a banana on side for lunch since am still trying to go meatless! They even HAD chobani greek yogurt!! I WISH I had seen this post earlier! Instead I'm like "I shoulda thought of that!!!". Thanks for another great idea!!!

  24. i love your site! I visit it at least 3x a week, which is why ive noticed that for the last couple of days i havent been able to save the recipies to my recipie box. I click the buttom and it just saying 'processing' and never goes further. Would love to make sure i can save all these great recipies ive been seeing. Can you look into this perhaps? Thanks!

    1. It's powdered Peanut Butter without all the fat. You add a little water and you have low fat peanut butter, it's great!

  26. Hi Gina,
    would it alter the points+ value if I used Better n Peanut Butter? Also, I bet it would be teriffic with vanilla flavored greek yogurt.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love it! PB & J and then P & G. Great Combo.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Any possibility you can do a posting (or two) on PB2? I had to look it up to see what it was and OMG, this could be a saving grace for me. I'm a HUGE PB fan and seriously could just eat it out of the jar. It could be that you already have done a post, just haven't been able to go and sift through your older posts.

  29. I tried this recipe this morning sans the grapes and peanuts (because I didn't have any) but it was DELICIOUS. I have a new favorite in the breakfast line up!

    ReplyDelete
  30. this looks amazing. Anything with Greek yogurt is delicious! Can't wait to try it & I will have to start experimenting myself with this yogurt & come up with my own recipes.Thanks!

  31. My sons will love this for breakfast this weekend! Just found your site and I think it will be my go-to site for menu planning! xoxo www.styleoyster.blogspot.com

  32. That was really weird and really good! I will share it at my WW meeting next week. I shared your Tzatziki recipe today.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yum! This looks good- I'm still waiting for Chobani to hit shops in Qld but I might try it with diff yogurt.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have yet to try one of your recipes I didn't love! This was a great snack, just as I was getting really bored with all my usual snack options!

  35. This is so simple & looks delicious! Thanks for sharing

  36. Gina - your blog is beautiful! I just found you through TasteSpotting. Your photography is amazing, and your recipes look yummy.

    I just started my own blog....a fun mix of two passions.

    ReplyDelete
  37. A chobani cafe...how awesome is that!? I am far from NYC though so, I guess I'll have to settle for making up some creations on my own. This PB & J version looks super yummy! I think it would be awesome with the strawberry jam version you recommended. I will definitely be giving this a try sometime!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have just discovered Chobani and love experimenting with it. Love this recipe!! Nothing better than pb and j in my opinion!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi! Just nominated your blog for the One Lovely Blog award. Love your blog! http://styleoyster.blogspot.com/2012/08/one-lovely-blog-award-aw-shucks-thank.html

  40. This is delicious! I added a little honey. I want another one now :)

  41. I had this breakfast this morning, it was excellent! So happy to have discovered your web site.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would never have thought to combine the taste of yogurt with PB&J but I had this for breakfast today using strawberries and strawberry Simply Fruit and it was GREAT. The cup of yogurt gives enough volume so I felt full and I love having a grain-free breakfast. Mid-morning now and I'm still going strong.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I am always on the lookout to fill those wretched evening pangs with healthy snacks. This is just perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Not a fan of the plain yogurt taste...will definitely give it a second try with the vanilla version as the base though! Great after school snack!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Made this last weekend and it was seriously hands down the best thing I have EVER had!! Thanks Gina!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. OMG!! sooooo yummy!! I just had it for breakfast and it's the best!! Instead of grapes and peanuts, I cut up a banana in the yogurt. DELICIOUS!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I like just about everything, and your recipes are usually wonderful, but this one was a big miss for me. Really disgusting, sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I absolutely LOVE this! I am not a Greek yogurt fan, but I keep buying it because I know it's so healthy. (I can do it as a sour cream sub, but just don't like it sweet.) However, this has won me over. I've had it for breakfast 4 times already, and I've told all of my friends to try it. I kinda want to shout it from the rooftops! Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. This is so delicious!! I was making it for myself for breakfast when my 7 year old asked if he could try it. It was a huge hit!! This will be a staple for back to school breakfast!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I've been making PB&J greek yogurt for over a year now, I'm so glad to see it on your site where other people can see how amazing it is! Great way to get in a high protein breakfast when you're sick of eggs.

    Get creative, use any nut butter along with any kind of jam, preserve, or fruit butter - my favorite is fig butter + almond butter, with a sprinkle of Fiber One on top for crunch.

    ReplyDelete
  51. This is just too cool!!! I never would have thought to use peanut butter and jelly on yogurt. You are so amazing. You always have the BEST ideas! :D

    ReplyDelete
  52. I absolutely LOVE this idea! I used PB and Co Crunch Time PB and my mom's homemade raspberry jelly and it was AMAZING! :) This is my new favorite healthy breakfast/lunch! Thanks for your wonderful recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Ive been eating this for lunch every day for a few weeks now. Its really good

    But, I have to use dannon greek yogurt. Chobani has too much of a stomach acid taste to me. Dannon is much easier to stomach....hehe

    Also, I use whole foods or trader jo's all natural no sugar or salt added PB. Better for you than reduced fat PB.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Really great! Post more recipes like this, please! Love this for breakfast, and would love other ways to perk up Greek yogurt. Thanks so much for the great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I always get the strangest looks when I have the container of plain greek yogurt next to me and I crack open the jar of peanut butter with the jelly sitting there, too, but everyone I have had try it says it's amazing!

    I love it with Peter Pan Honey Roasted peanut butter and strawberry Simply Fruit with Fiber jelly. If it wasn't so filling I could totally eat two cups!

    Thanks Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  56. This really sounds delicious but I don't really like Greek yogurt, do you think this would be ok with regulat fat free yogurt?

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yogurt is a must over the luncheons to make food refreshing

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hmmm I bet this would also be good with sliced banana in place of jam & grapes. (((peanut butter and banana!)))

    ReplyDelete
  59. Not a huge PB&J fan but I made this today because I was looking for a filling breakfast--it was DELICIOUS! The yogurt knocked it up 100 notches. This could be my new go-to breakfast!

    Did you ever end up making the cucumber mint? Reminds me of an old Lebanese salad recipe and would love your take on it.

    ReplyDelete
  60. enjoyed this recipe for breakfast this morning!! Except i used strawberry jelly and fresh strawberries. Thanks for the wonderful idea. This has been the second recipe of yours this week I tried and I couldn't be happier with both! (first was lasagna and spinach roll ups!)

    ReplyDelete
  61. This hit the spot! I ate it as a post-workout snack. I used sugar free grape jam and all-natural crunchy peanutbutter (which was a great substitute since I didn't have any peanuts on hand.). Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I was dying to try this but I was out of yogurt and had no peanuts lying around. I found a carton of french vanilla ice cream that had only one serving left, so i threw it in a bowl, added the grapes, strawberry jelly, and crunch peanut butter....SO good. It works great as a dessert too :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I wondered if you can use greek lite and fit yogurt and take pb & jelly and add it to that. Wondered how that would taste!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I am new to portioning... Would this ALONE be a breakfast? I usually do oatmeal with raisins and walnuts, but this seems so small...
